Here’s to a festive and joyous New Year’s celebration!
If you have trouble remembering New Year’s celebrations of the past it could be
because you’ve been enjoying too much alcohol. Binge drinking is common among

control memory. The best tips for avoiding blackouts from OHSU's On the Brain Blog---eat before drinking,

of water. That strategy will keep you hydrated, happy and capable of enjoying
family and friends well past midnight.

Happy New Year and to a healthy new you in 2013!
